OS/2 and eComStation After god knows how many years, it's finally here: the final release of eComStation 2.0. We first reported on eComStation 2.0 back in December 2005, when the first beta was released, and between then and now, we've seen countless betas and release candidates come and go, but the wait is finally over.

Me too.

Your switch to openSUSE would have been in 2007....about two years after IBM stopped marketing OS/2 (December 2005). Two years is an eternity with respect to the hardware cycle and it becomes almost impossible to catch-up with respect to available of drivers - notably the display ones required for the eye candies we have now become used to.

With respect to missing PM/WPS, keep an eye on the progress of the Voyager project.....its aim is essentially to graft the PM/WPS personality on a kernel (likely the Linux kernel). This may become quite interesting once actual executable code starts circulating in the community.
